Hello all you lovely bees! How I’ve missed you!
I’ve been gone because about a month and a half ago, I slipped and fell while trying on a wedding dress (!!!), and completely shattered my elbow. The pain was the worst of my life, only to be topped by the pain from the necessary surgery to pin my bone fragments back together :/ They had to cut through another bone to get to the fracture because it was so deep, and they also had to move my humeral (funny bone) nerve, causing non-stop nerve damage pain in my hand.
It’s been a really rough month for me – I’ve mostly been laid up constantly because the pain was (and still can be) debilitating. I’m so NOT a homebody, so being confined to the bed was pretty much torture, and I think I drifted into depression at times, from the loneliness and sheer unfairness of it all. As a further blow, I broke my right elbow, so I lost the use of my right hand (though it shouldn’t be permanent, thankfully). I am just now getting proficient enough with my left hand to type anything longer than a sentence, and of course the Bee is one of my first stops. I’ve really missed talking to you ladies!
I’d love to hear how you are all doing, and any exciting/important/fun things that have happened since mid-January 🙂 I still get tired really quickly, and my pain meds knock me out randomly, but I will respond, sooner or later!

Oh my gosh, that’s crazy!! Don’t buy that dress, haha, clearly it’s bad luck! I’m glad to hear you’re doing a bit better now though. Someday, once your arm is all healed up and this is in the past, this will be a hilariously weird story to tell future generations.
Hope your recovery continues smoothly and quickly 🙂
